Event Details

This session will look at how community heritage organisations are approaching youth engagement, and their efforts to involve young people in all aspects of heritage work. From making our work more transparent and accessible to young people from all backgrounds to demonstrating that heritage is relevant to their lives, there are things we can all do to welcome and champion young people in the heritage sector.

The Speakers for this session will be:

  • HistoricScot Youth Forum/Young Scot group: Challenges and opportunities for young people and the heritage sector
  • Marie Morrison, North Uist Heritage: Children in North Uist explore the effect of climate change on their heritage.
  • Our Story Scotland: Collecting and archiving the stories of young LGBT people.
  • Stove Blueprint: Blueprint 100: providing creative experiences and opportunities for young people

Our speakers will offer expert advice, support and insights relating to youth engagement and we will hear from community groups who have been successful in attracting young people to get involved with their work.

Scotland’s Community Heritage Conversations is a new series of digital events to bring together volunteers, community groups and heritage professionals, providing them with a stage to share experiences, inspire and support one another with ideas and plans, and to celebrate the places that matter to us all.

Community Heritage Conversations is a re-imagining of Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference, which since 2012 has developed into a lively forum bringing together many different voices from the heritage world. This series will start in November 2020 and run throughout 2021.
